    1978 Pete Rose Game Worn Cincinnati Reds Jersey. Another 198 hits this year en route to chasing down the most fearsome figure in the game. And for those who think that Charlie Hustle had no pop in his bat, we note that the thirty-seven year old topped all National Leaguers with a remarkable fifty-one doubles in that tally. So the significant wear evident in this home white pullover knit should come as little surprise. Sweat and tobacco stains are found throughout the garment, which balances a number "14" and chenille Reds logo patch on chest with a "14 Rose" on verso. Lower left front interior tail is labeled "Rawlings [size] 44" with "Set 1 1978" flap tag affixed. Remember, 1978 was the year that Rose gave Joltin' Joe his biggest scare to date, hitting safely in forty-four consecutive games. With season-long wear evident in this garment, its use during that remarkable campaign is all but assured. Rose signed the front in blue felt tip. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
